Too busy and too edgy. You added creases to a design that works very well as a smooth surface. All the added surfaces trouble the eye.
I don't know what the aerodynamic outcome would be; the current design has a drag coefficient of .29 if memory serves. I'd wager this one will be considerably higher. You get 200+ mph out of so few horsepower by slicing through the wind, not hitting it with a brick.
Not an improvement.
